“A terrific contemporary romance” set in the wild northwest from the New York Times bestselling author of the Maximum Security novels (Booklist).
One of a kind. Kat Martin’s heroes are as rugged and tough as they come, but honor rules no matter how hot the temptation . . .
Call Hawkins just wants to be left alone and leave the past where it belongs. The bleak beauty of Dead Horse Creek is a perfect place to get away from the world . . . a place where nothing exists to remind him of everything he’s lost. His isolation is complete—until Charity Sinclair arrives fresh from New York City. Stunningly beautiful and stubbornly independent, she’s also shamefully ignorant of the untamed wilderness . . . and the very real dangers she’ll face if Call doesn’t teach her a thing or two.
But even with Call’s grudging help, Charity’s dream of life in the Yukon may have led her into something much more savage than the forest: A menace as endless as the long days that run together without darkness—and a killer who won’t let anything come between him and perfect, deadly vengeance . . .
Praise for Kat Martin
“Kat Martin is a fast gun when it comes to storytelling, and I love her books.” —Linda Lael Miller, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A terrific storyteller.” —Booklist
“It doesn’t matter what Martin’s characters are up against—she dishes up romantic suspense, sizzling sex and international intrigue.” —RT Book Reviews
“[A] master of suspenseful romance.” —Publishers Weekly
It's hard to figure out why Midnight Sun is categorized as a "romantic suspense" when there is none of the latter; the only suspense is in waiting to see if something suspenseful will happen. As a romance, however, Kat Martin's tale of 28-year-old Charity Sinclair, a New York career woman who leaves her job editing adventure books to follow her dream of prospecting in the Yukon, has considerable strength. Readers can rest assured that Charity finds far more than mere gold dust, and the author's descriptions of Charity's neighbor, Call Hawkins, linger lovingly on every one of the rugged recluse's physical attributes. Well-researched theories about DNA-transmitted "inherited memories"-offered in explanation of Charity's obsession with the Klondike Gold Rush-are intriguing, and temptingly detailed "how-to" descriptions of modern gold-panning methods will activate readers' get-rich-quick fantasies.
